As literary journals around the world search for new ways to support themselves, The Rumpus has found an unexpected new strategy–readers can subscribe to receive a weekly letter (via postal service) from the literary website.

Check it out: “The Rumpus is finally starting a print subscription. We’d like to say this was the plan all along, but we’ve actually never had a plan. It’s called Letters In The Mail.

Think of it as the letters you used to get from your creative friends, before this whole internet/email thing.”
